i dont know about spec but dh has a tomtom-he tried another make before and it wasnt good. He paid about £150 and he added speed cameras as far as i know free-i think it also does traffic updates, and he updates maps from the tomtom site easily. Hope this helps?

the best price i have seen for this item anywhere.

TOM TOM is the best.... just a simple tom tom 1 europe is all you need.. mine takes me from my front door to my favorite coffeeshop in amsterdam no problem... i drive about 500 miles a week in the uk each week and it performs great..

ive had a navman 510,520 and right now 720 which is messed up. i want to try a tomtom out but i will need a professional one as i will be using it alot.

dont understand how more use means you need a more expensive one? my bro just bought the tomtom xl europe and he is a gadget freak!! he will use it for courier work..

wow only 130? wats the diference between that and the 920?
and also never heard of company anyone ordered from them?

you could always get a PDA with built in sat nav and put the PDa tomtom software on that but it may cost near the £300 mark.

im not sure what dh had at first but he took it back..the tomtom is fab really and seems a steal at £130!! there are usually deals on at hol times at the big retailers-him indoors watched a site that compares prices of just satnavs for a while and got it reduced.:thumbsup:

ALICOM007;2313348

what nav does your bro have?



i think he said xl europe-only got it about a month ago

i have loads on my tomtom go 530t (£240 ish )

mr t sounds fun-and i dont think he would appeal to my bro without the bad language:roll: he likes to shock!
he got all the voices free-dunno where from-he said he has even tried royalty-i think he said prince philip:?

do they let you do that? i thought if you open it you cant return it,

sorry he updates on the tomtom site free

ALICOM007;2313510

well as i said we got another make first and changed it..you can ask-anyway they will take it back if it has an intermittent fault:whistling:

ok tomtom site allows map updates only for 12months and then you can go onto mapshare free on the tomtom site-he said you pay a fee for that, but doesnt know how much it is. He hasnt updated since it was 12 months old as he is tight

i think i might just go for the tomtom xl with traffic updates. the most important thing is that i can update it easily.
